Accordions and beer
Whether it's cajun, blues, zydeco, conjunto, charmame, feita, polka,... Accordion music is just plain feel-good music.

Myron Floren was "the accordion man" on the Lawrence Welk TV Show. I was raised by my grandmother, The Lawrence Welk Show was a Sunday evening staple throughout my childhood.

That ought to get your feet movin'!
